Abstract : Tests were performed to examine the manner in which various components of induced turbulence combine. Ambient or background turbulence created in the wind tunnel with a grid of cylinders interacted with the turbulence induced by a model aircraft carrier in the wind tunnel. The interaction of the turbulence components was studied with the objective of developing methods of removal of the ambient turbulence component from the total component of turbulence. The method for the removal of ambient turbulence is being developed for application in the full-scale aircraft carrier turbulence program. (Author)
